Cons getting 'deluxe' medical care

KATHLEEN HARRIS, SUN OTTAWA BUREAU





Federal inmates are getting "deluxe" medical treatment behind bars, with costs per prisoner roughly double those of the average Canadian on the outside. Taxpayers spent $81.5 million to keep 12,500 offenders healthy last year, providing free access to prescription drugs, medical treatments and a controversial methadone program for heroin addicts.
